Does anyone else name their plants? A rose bush in the garden maybe? Or a potted mint on the balcony? No? The money plant on the book shelf surely? No? Your poor plants. How do they know who they are?
It could just be me though. I have never met anyone else with a spider-plant called Shakes(peare)
Or a Geranium named Gerty...
She even has a name plaque, which on the reverse tells her she is actually called Chives, but to me and The Beard, reminds us of this beauty's name.
She has lots of new heads which are bursting into life. Handy for the Summer Solstice. Then again, I am surprised she has been able to lift her head up at all recently.
Sun, where art thou?
I heart Geraniums. I truly do. I adore the fact that they look like little rosebuds before they open up.
And you get so many blooms from these beauts.
I do have some more on the balcony, but as geraniums do well indoors & out, Gerty asked to stay put as she was feeling poorly crook. She has now become part of the kitchen.
She is coming along a treat.
So, not many of you out there name your plants, eh?
Hmmm.. maybe it comes from seeing Little Shop of Horrors at an early age.
